Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Instituto de Física (IF)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Has a PhD in Physics (2004) from the State University at Campinas (UNICAMP), and worked as assistant researcher at the Brazilian Institute for Space Research between 2004 and 2008. Since 2008 is associate professor at the Physics Institute of the University of Sao Paulo, where he was appointed head of the Department of Applied Physics. Works on understanding the role of water vapor and clouds on the climate system and how it might be changed by anthropogenic influences, especially changes in aerosols. Has particular interest on water vapor transport over South America and the importance of the Amazon forest for the moisture recycling, through evapotranspiration and precipitation. Apply physical models based on Complex Networks and also atmospheric models to understand biosphere-atmosphere interactions. Worked with physical parameterizations in climate models, particularly radiation and convection, and the development of the Brazilian Earth System Model. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
